    WIndows mount problem


    I am having permission problems mounting my windows-controlled ntfs hard drive (hda) in Ubuntu (which is on a second harddrive.) I did

    mkdir /mnt/win
    mount  -t ntfs /dev/hda1 /mnt/win
    I can view the mount as root but not as non-root (I get "Permission Denied") even though I have user in /etc/fstab:

    /dev/hda1   /mnt/win   ntfs   ro,user,auto,exec   0   0
    The results of the mount command yields
    /dev/hda1 on /mnt/win type ntfs (ro,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
    What can I do to make this viewable in non-root?

    Try the following.

    /dev/hda1            /windows/C           ntfs       ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=utf8 0 0

    That did it.
